Editage conducts a workshop on the basics of Academic Writing for TIFR
(November 14, 2018; Mumbai, India) From 24th to 28th July, budding researchers at the esteemed Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai attended a workshop conducted by Editage Training Academy on the prerequisites of academic writing, which is a significant move concerning our expanding research education plans in India. TIFR is a National Centre of the Government of India, under the umbrella of the Department of Atomic Energy, as well as a deemed University that awards degrees for master's and doctoral programs. The course was conducted at the Ramanujan Guest House in TIFR for 69 first-year students. The curriculum was carefully designed after discussion with the faculty and understanding the students’ requirements.
Editage trainers, Anisha Kunder, Aarthi Soundararajan, Prathamesh Chodankar, and Jason Philip covered the basics of academic writing which includes manuscript structuring, abstract writing, essentials of grammar, punctuation and sentence construction as well as popular science writing. Each session required prep work by the students. The interactive session included presentations, demonstrations, and exercises. For instance, students were asked to prepare a write-up on their research interests and paired up to review each other’s write-ups based on structure and language-related concepts learnt over the duration of the course.
Based on the turnout and largely positive feedback, attendees found the course to be useful and informative. Participants were guided so as to develop a better connect with the scientific community as they were introduced to the different aspects of scientific language used in academic publishing. Committed to author education, Editage has combined their unique author perspective and years of expertise in delivering education solutions for researchers to launch a Training Academy that focuses on coaching researchers on all aspects of the publication process.
